Since its inception, Obiex has been committed to spreading across Africa, delivering user-friendly and practical cryptocurrency services to as many individuals as possible. This unwavering dedication has resulted in over 55,000 users across the West African region in just 36 months.

In a major stride towards achieving its goal of crypto inclusion, Obiex recently ventured into Cameroon to host its inaugural Obiex Central event aimed at both its customers and the broader cryptocurrency community.

Why Cameroon?

Cameroon is a rapidly growing market with a significant demand for dependable crypto trading solutions. The Obiex platform already boasts a vibrant community of over 3,000 active Cameroonian traders.

With a comprehensive suite of services, Obiex’s objective was to support both new and existing users in Cameroon, engage directly with the community, address their concerns, and express gratitude for their continuous support.

Obiex Central Douala Event Highlights

Obiex Central in Cameroon was conceived as a relaxed networking event, with emphasis on personal interaction between customers, and the Obiex team.

The evening began with the MC introducing the crypto exchange, followed by Chief Marketing Officer Nwogbo Chibuike’s insightful presentation of the company’s vision for Cameroon.

Chibuike highlighted Cameroon’s impressive transaction volumes, which spurred Obiex’s decision to organise this event. He shared plans to leverage the country’s high enthusiasm for crypto to expand the community further. 

Notable upcoming features include a P2P trading option and a rewarding referral program tailored for the Cameroonian market.

Next, CEO Ikechukwu Okeke took the stage to engage with customers, answer questions, and gather suggestions.

Customers voiced their need for a local exchange, with one expressing a preference for resolving issues within Africa rather than abroad. Okeke reassured attendees about the platform’s security, emphasising adherence to top industry standards to protect customer assets.

Okeke also announced that Cameroon would be the first to experience the new referral program and prioritised the launch of P2P trading. Following these announcements, customers shared their crypto journeys and how they discovered Obiex. A highlight of the evening was when Okeke awarded $1,000 to Ngala, who shared an inspiring story of transitioning from a teacher earning 45,000 CFA to a full-time crypto trader.

The event concluded with attendees enjoying a buffet of intercontinental and local dishes, champagne, and a celebratory toast from Chibuike. Networking continued as media interviews were conducted, where a customer named Dion praised the Obiex customer support team’s responsiveness and dedication.
